I will miss you dad! You are my hero, the strongest and bravest man I have ever known. You were my teacher, counselor, comforter, encourager and you loved me unconditionally. I don't know life without you! My heart is broken, but you will forever stay alive in my precious memories of you! Please save a place for me in heaven!
I love you! I always have and always will!

Love You

Love is not proud
Love does not boast
Love after all
Matters the most

Love does not run
Love does not hide
Love does not keep
Locked inside

Love is the river that flows through
Love never fails you

Love will sustain
Love will provide
Love will not cease
At the end of time

Love will protect
Love always hopes
Love still believes
When you don't

Love is the arms that are holding you
Love never fails you

Love is right here
Love is alive
Love is the way
The truth the life

Love is the river than flows through
Love is the arms that are holding you
Love is the place you will fly to
Love never fails you
